It seems this summer has kept us busy in every way, not to mention a cancer diagnosis and surgery for me. Since we’re leaving soon, we’re now in the fast lane in getting our home set up as much as is possible and taking off for the MFI Conference in Portland, then traveling back to Haiti.
Thanks so much to all of you who have prayed for us. Your prayers mean more than you can know. I will ask you to please offer your prayers once more for my brother, Laney. Out of a family of five, Laney and I were the last two. I am very sad to say that Laney has been diagnosed with lung cancer and emphysema and has been given 1 to 1 and 1 /2 years to live. He is already in poor health from diabetes and dementia. While we know that the Lord has the last say concerning the number of our days, I am keenly aware that when we return, Laney may have already left this earth. This is one of the hardest parts of being a missionary and deeply saddens me. I already have one brother in Heaven.
Thank you for your heartfelt prayers and encouragement!
